18 police officers assaulted in Hampshire over weekend

Hampshire Police

1:40pm 17th July 2017

A number of police officers in Hampshire were punched, spat at and kicked over the weekend just gone.

Figures released by the county's Police Federation reveal 18 officers were assaulted.

One received a broken hand.

Chairman of the Federation, John Apter, has described the incidents as 'totally unacceptable'.

Just last week, a man was arrested for assaulting two police officers in Farnborough.

Officers were called to Merlin Road just after 5.00pm yesterday evening (July 12) where they attempted to arrest the man.

On arrival, they discovered the man was holding a knife.

Two male officers suffered significant but non-life threatening injuries, one sustained a laceration to his shoulder and the other a laceration to his hand.

And earlier this year, a man was jailed for life for assaulting two police officers in Aldershot.

Geoff Hill and Karl Odgers, after they were attacked while attending a domestic incident in Aldershot on the evening of Tuesday 7 February.

The man responsible, Simon Priest, viciously attacked both officers, punching them and repeatedly stamping on their heads.

Police said the attack could have resulted in death.
